Not sure why Stewart went after Bolton who AGREES with Obama
The Critics are Lining Up: Now Jon Stewart Questions Obama Over Libya
- Posted on March 23, 2011
Remember after the midterm elections President Obama blamed the
Democrats’ “shellacking” on a lack of communication? Well, if you ask
Jon Stewart, that communication problem still exists. Especially when it
comes to Libya. And it’s a problem.
Stewart became another voice on a growing list of liberals stating
their displeasure with the president’s decision to intervene in Libya.
In short, Stewart couldn‘t figure out exactly why we’re in Libya. Matt
Schneider at Mediaite sums Stewart’s critique up like this:
If it’s just to stop the violence against civilians, then
Stewart listed off many other countries where we should arguably be
helping as well. Or if it’s something else, then Stewart essentially
asked Obama, “why won’t you talk to us?”
“One of the problems we are having with you Mr. President is a
communications gap,” Stewart said. The money quotes come when Stewart
compares Obama’s communication skills to a couple married 40 years.
